Dear Granny and Grandad

We wrote to our Gran and Grandad from the minute we could write.
This letter is from me, slipped in with my Sister's on 11 January 1974.

Translation:

I am plucking up the courage to post some of the teenage ones I wrote when we first came to Australia, they are just so incredibly cringeworthy though.

That's so hilarious! I'm sitting at the computer laughing...isn't it difficult to decipher words when they're not spelt correctly!

I would love to see the teen ones.

That's reminded me of the letter I wrote to my Nan on the plane on the way back from Oz, I'm going to find it out and post it later! (on blog that is, not literally)Thanks for such a lovely reminder!x
